The Camel

: Aesop's Fables

WHEN MAN first saw the Camel, he was so frightened at his vast

size that he ran away. After a time, perceiving the meekness and

gentleness of the beast's temper, he summoned courage enough to

approach him. Soon afterwards, observing that he was an animal

altogether deficient in spirit, he assumed such boldness as to

put a bridle in his mouth, and to let a child drive him.

Use serves to overcome dread.
